My attempted solution approximately 6 years ago was to go to Surefoot at Squaw. They put me in the Lange Rx 120. I think they use the Conformable foam for liners, but I am not sure about that. They punched out the sixth toe area for me on each boot. I believe the last of that boot is something like 102,but I am not sure about that either.
The footbeds and fit for my foot have never been better in all of my 40 years of skiing. The problem is my lower leg shaft. If I don't cinch down my upper buckle and the powerstrap, my shins get sore and start to bleed. I recently took out the flex screws in the spine. I didn't get bleeding shin bang, but instead got what looked like rope burns, complete with blistered skin that turned to bleed and then scabs on the insides of my legs above the ankle bones.
Have my liners packed down too much? Do I need new boots? Should I try a new liner, like Intuition, and if so, can I keep my footbeds? Should I try eliminator tongue, power strap? Does a higher volume last mean too much volume for my lower leg shaft? Should I get a lower volume last and just punch the hell out of the forefoot?
I enjoy skiing bumps. Last day out I loosened my buckles and power strap and didn't have any issues with burns, bruises or bleeding but felt like my connection to the ski was sloppy and floppy, especially in heavier snow.
I am interested in Full Tilt's new Descendant series for the flex tongue, but maybe last that accommodates my forefoot is all wrong for the rest of my fit in the boot?
Thanks for reading. Any help would be gratefully appreciated and most welcome.
